Opposite Day A Political Satire by J.R. Penstroke J.R. Penstroke

Title:Opposite Day: A Political Satire
Author: J.R. Penstroke
Genre: Humor / Satire / Politics
Pages: 80

Synopsis:
Third-grader Billy Simmons has declared it Opposite Day.

Only, it's not that simple. A council of twelve dolphins is involved. And a mystical raccoon named Ralphy. Billy faces a personal crises as the world comes unhinged from a polar shift in political ideologies. Democrats are gun-toting conservatives; Republicans are so socialist, they give socialism a bad name.

Opposite Day is a political satire in the vain of Jonathan Swift. Or, contemporaries like Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and all the staff writers at The Onion. Opposite Day is a quick read (~16,000 words), presented as a series of vignettes; not unlike a sketch comedy show. Billy's story is the glue that ties it all together.

If you are conservative, fundamentalist, or easily offended, then Opposite Day is probably not for you. The politics of Opposite Day lean pretty far left--you know, radical stuff like feeding the poor, healing the sick, and dropping knowledge, not bombs.
